The View From The Porch "To tell the weather- , call a psychic'. Last
week while waiting for the weather to change, I was contacted by a psychic
from Scarsdale whom I'd interviewed for a magazine seven months ago. "At
the time I was very impressed by Fran Tesler's formidable ability to see
into the future." For the record, Fran Tesler, the Scarsdale psychic,
is very, very good. In fact, she is excellent. Fran was spot on about
an arcane element regarding my son's accident last spring when he was
hit by a car. Without my telling her, she knew quite a bit about my mother-in-law's
health. "Life is what you make of it, the psychic from Scarsdale said.'
Perhaps the time is ripe to put it out there ,just in case. After all,
the weather is changing. The curious should contact Fran Tesler for themselves.

So what if Francine Tesler doesn't have her own TV
Westchester's answer to the Long Island Medium is just as busy
fielding messages from the other side -- and such a popular fixture at
restaurants around the region, you've likely seen her somewhere, even
if you've never sat down for a reading.

a child. In 1983, she started doing readings on a small scale, and by
1994, she'd made it her full-time career.
Though she gets messages from the dead -- just like celebrity medium
Theresa Caputo -- Tesler is also a "medical intuitive" who's in tune
with clients' health issues. But information comes through in such a
jumbled way, it's often hard to decipher the signals.
"When I dreamed a male in my family was pregnant for three months, he
couldn't have been," says Tesler, whose relative ended up having a
triple hernia. "I had the right idea, the wrong application."
Men, however, do form a large part of her client base, often coming to
Tesler with business-related questions. Women ask about a multitude of

"I make people wait three months between my readings because I don't
promote psychic junkie-ism," she says, noting that there are
exceptions for business-related issues and crisis situations. "I would
rather make less money and have a client for a lifetime."
Clients, however, know not to follow Tesler's words blindly. She is
like a road map, she says -- and it's up to you to choose which
highway to take.
"I'm like an
eagle flying above. I have an aerial view of things," she says. "Just
because I see it, doesn't mean it's written in stone. You have free
choice. Basically, take what you need and leave the rest."
Here are 10
things you may not know about Westchester medium Francine Tesler:
everyone gets excited about her gifts. "A lot of people freak out,"
says Tesler. "My friends say I have psychic Tourette's, because I have
to try really hard not to say things to people."

spirits, sometimes they're trapped in a house because they haven't
finished something or they feel they haven't gotten a message across,"
sleep well. Tesler's senses are constantly being bombarded, day and
night. "It's like a day dream in a slide show, very quick images,
fragments, like pieces of puzzles," she says. "I'm also hearing things
and feeling things, and I may smell something. It's a constant sensory

Tesler. "To me, that's a red flag. If they say, 'Oh, no, it interrupts
the vibrations of the reading,' they're full of poppycock. Otherwise
how do you validate it?"
In some ways,
says Tesler, she's like a doctor. "Not everyone is going to want to
hear what I say, and not everyone is going to be the right fit," she
says. "If somebody says to me, 'I'm dating a married man. Is he going
to get divorced?' and I look at them and go, 'No,' they don't want to

die. "It's against God," she says. "I truly believe we can change the
way we take our voyages, but God gives us what we need, not always
what we want."
